Asian African Association for Plasma Training

AAAPT Picture 
The Asian African Association for Plasma Training, or AAAPT, is an organization/network founded on 7 June 1988 to provide facilities for plasma research by small research groups in developing countries. Originally, it consisted of nineteen institutions from 12 countries, but it has now grown to 41 institutions from 23 countries (Picture: Abdus Salam visiting the University of Malaya (UM) in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, on 20 January 1986, when the first version of the UNU/ICTP PFF (Plasma Focus Facility) was developed, assembled, and tested).


The AAAPT is an affiliated network of the Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP), receiving funding for its collaborative activities. Assistance in the form of travel and other fellowships had also been received from the Third World Academy of Sciences (TWAS), UNESCO and several other organizations. The bulk of the contributions for its activities had come from the scientists from the member institutions in terms of expertise, time and effort and from the member institutions, in terms of infrastructural support.
